I reposted the recipe for Sharron's Carrot Cake the other day and someone asked about a spice cake recipe. I didn't have one until NOW! I reworked the carrot cake recipe and turned it into something delicious! I added some grated apple and applesauce and the result was an extremely moist cake that's extremely good. The addition of the cinnamon cream cheese frosting just adds to the yumminess!
